Synopsis: An authentic guide to Thai yoga massage, a unique therapy that combines stretching, breath work, assisted yoga postures, and pressure point therapy.

· Includes more than 80 illustrations, 30 charts, and a complete series of postures for a two-hour full-body massage.

· Author Kam Thye Chow has taught massage in Thailand and throughout Europe and North America.

Until recently Thai yoga massage was virtually unknown in the West. It has its roots in both the ancient healing traditions of Ayurveda and Thai Buddhism. In this unique practice, the therapist gives a full-body massage that combines palming and thumbing along the Thai energy lines and pressure points with gentle stretching, movement, and breath work reminiscent of tai chi. Using his or her own hands, feet, arms, and legs, the practitioner gently guides the recipient through a series of yoga postures, creating a harmonious and therapeutic “dance” that leads to greater physical awareness, grace, and spiritual energy.

In this comprehensive guide for practitioners, Kam Thye Chow leads readers through every aspect of this dance--from its history and philosophy to a detailed presentation of a complete Thai yoga massage session. This important reference includes more than 80 illustrated postures, 30 charts and drawings, and a complete series of postures for a two-hour full-body massage that focuses attention on both the upper and lower body, which receive equal stress in the Western lifestyle. Information on contraindications, anatomy, and physiology integrates Western medical knowledge and theory with this ancient tradition. Massage therapists, physical therapists, nurses, and other medical professionals will find Thai Yoga Massage an important and innovative complement to their practice.

From the Inside Flap: MASSAGE / BODYWORK

In the temples of Thailand, many centuries ago, a dynamic bodywork therapy based on yoga, Ayurveda, and the martial arts was born. In this unique healing system of Thai Yoga Massage, the practitioner guides the recipient through a series of yoga postures while palming and thumbing along the body’s energy lines and pressure points. Together these actions result in a comprehensive full-body treatment that relieves muscular tension, improves circulation, boosts the immune system, and balances the body energetically.

Thai Yoga Massage is practiced as a duet. Counterbalancing and levering the recipient’s body with his own, the practitioner works with gravity, breath, and directed touch to create a harmonious and therapeutic “dance” with the recipient that imparts physical vibrancy, grace, and spiritual energy.

In this fully illustrated instructional guide to Thai Yoga Massage, Kam Thye Chow, one of the world’s foremost teachers and practitioners, leads readers through every aspect of this ancient bodywork therapy--from its origins in Thai Buddhist temples and the theoretical foundations of its development to a detailed presentation of classic Thai Yoga Massage postures. Detailed, step-by-step photographs show the author performing each posture for a one- to two-hour full-body massage. Information on important contraindications and fundamental anatomy and physiology integrates Western medical knowledge and theory with this ancient healing tradition. Massage therapists, physical therapists, yoga practitioners, and others in the somatic arts will find Thai Yoga Massage an important and innovative complement to their work.

KAM THYE CHOW is the author of Tai Chi Chuan: Mindfulness in Motion, and his writings have been featured in Massage and Bodywork and other healing arts journals. Kam Thye teaches Thai Yoga Massage in Thailand and throughout Europe and North America. Currently based in Montreal, he is the founder and director of the first school of Thai massage to be accredited by the Quebec Massage Federation.
